Belarus at the Crossroad by Sherman W. Garnett (Editor), Robert Legvold
May 15th, 2002
Belarus, although frequently overlooked in the West, is a country critical to the development of the
post-Soviet states and to Europe as a whole. Its location alone -- bordering Russia, Lithuania, Latvia, Poland
and Ukraine -- points to its importance as a major geopolitical player. On top of that, the ambitions
of its president mean that Belarus will likely have a say in the future of Russia, Ukraine, and
other neighboring states. To address what, to date, has been short-sighted and potentially dangerous
neglect of this country, the editors of this book bring together essays by specialists from Belarus,
Poland, Ukraine, Lithuania, Russian and the United States to focus on Belarus's place in the
evolving European security environment. No other publication has taken such a diverse approach to
this little-understood country.
